Ryan Reynolds Wants Hugh Jackman & Wolverine For Deadpool
About four months ago saw Hugh Jackman state he would be open to playing Wolverine in the Deadpool movie.
God I hope so, that would be really nice. I dunno, we’ll see. It seems like he’s open to it, but it’s gonna be more of a scheduling issue than anything else.
Hugh Jackman is schedudled to begin filming on The Greatest Showman on Earth playing PT Barnum soon in NYC.
Jackman will also be reprising as Wolverine one last time for the sequel to The Wolverine as the actor recently confirmed The Wolverine 2 will be his last X-Men movie.
As Deadpool and Reynolds first appeared in X-Men: Origins: Wolverine back in 2009, it's hoped Jackman can appear in Deadpool as well.
"Deadpool" has a February 12, 2016 release directed by Tim Miller starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, TJ Miller, Brianne Hildebrand and Ed Skrein.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
